At the Cognitive Neural Sciences Laboratory, we are broadly interested in cognition and emotion and their neural underpinnings.

Recently, we have begun investigating positive emotion (deviating ‘slightly’ from our more traditional study of fear learning and anxiety!). We are particularly interested in non-invasive and cost-effective ways to improve emotion and wellbeing, such as music. We are creating new music for this purpose, which enables us to independently manipulate different features, such as the valence of the lyrics.

Measuring emotion is also an important aspect of this project and we are attempting some innovative measures such as analysing voice patterns using machine learning algorithms and brain activity recorded via EEG.
